Emerging Markets – China

Once remote from the international community, a series of reforms since the late 1970s has seen China evolve into an economic powerhouse. In 2010, the country surpassed Japan as the world’s second largest economy after the United States. Such has been its phenomenal growth that China is predicted to overtake the US at some point in the 2020s. However, despite the lofty predictions, China faces some significant economic and other challenges.

 

This course looks in detail at China and its meteoric rise to economic superpower, in addition to some of the challenges the country faces. It also describes the banking and financial sector, which has had to evolve in line with China’s explosive economic growth.
